Simon Road off Foulk Road
Council District 2
Tuckaway, a single family detached community subdivision plan, was
approved by New Castle County Council on Tuesday September 27, 2005. The
applicant has voluntarily agreed to the addition of a note on the plan
which ensures permanent pedestrian access protection, as per my
suggestion at the New Castle County Council Land Use Committee meeting
prior to County Council's approval. Accordingly a note has been added to
The note added to the plan reads as follows: "Pedestrian access: there
shall be no obstructions (including fences) between the open space in
the south-west corner of the Tuckaway site and the property to the south
(tax parcel #06-111.00-147), so as to allow unimpeded pedestrian
movements between the properties."
It is important to protect and enhance pathways and this provides
another link in the Brandywine Hundred pathway network.
Additionally there will be a pedestrian connector connecting both
sections of Simon Road. This connector will not permit vehicular
traffic. The "paper street" is being vacated and the land on either side
of the pathway is being deeded to the contiguous property owners. The
western section of Simon Road connects to Foulk Road and will service
the Tuckaway subdivision. The eastern section of Simon Road services
Forest Hills Park, Weldin Farms, Twin Oaks and Shipley Heights. Thus,
these subdivisions will be assured permanent pedestrian access to the
Blue Ball State Park and the DE Greenway via the Simon Road pathway and
the Tuckaway open space parcel.
